The Las Vegas Review Journal did an article about the new restaurants opening in Downtown Las Vegas, three of which Breslin Builders provided both design and construction services for, as well as the facade remodel.
Breslin Builders last restaurant in the Sears Retail building at 7th and Carson is finishing up and getting ready to open in a few weeks. As with the other two restaurants (Glutton and Vegenation), as well as the facade remodel, Breslin Builders provided design-build services for this project. Below are some progress photos of the interior finishes.
Breslin Builders has provided design-build services for not only the shell facade remodel, but also all three of the restaurants mentioned in this article. We look forward to finally being able to complete this work once NV Energy provides the needed power upgrades to the building. In addition to the shell and the restaurants, we also provided some interior finish updates to the existing barber shop, A Cut Above, that remains at the building.
Breslin Builders is getting closer to completing the Sears Retail project and the associated restaurants, including Glutton and Vegenation. We received meter tags from the City of Las Vegas and meters have been set by NV Energy. The long anticipate electrical work to connect the needed upgraded power is due anytime from NV Energy, based on their install schedule, which will allow us to finalize the shell and restaurant projects for final approvals and occupancy.
Zydeco Po-Boys Restaurant is taking shape also with the build-out in the rough framing, rough electrical, mechanical, and plumbing stages.

Breslin Builders is progressing with the updates to the Sears Retail Center, including the work on the exterior facade and site changes and upgrades, as well as the interior restaurant build-outs for Glutton and Vegenation. The last part of the facade work at the west end expansion is being completed in preparation for the interior work of Zydeco Po-Boys Restaurant to take place, which the building permits have finally been approved by the City of Las Vegas. Once we have the upgraded power feeds installed by NV Energy, we can complete the balance of the open items and prepare for final completions.
Interior and exterior progress photos are below:
The design is done and plans have been submitted for the third and final restaurant space at the existing Sears building located at 7th and Carson. Breslin Builders is currently providing construction services for the shell remodel and two other restaurant spaces (Glutton and Vegenation), which we previously provided design services also.
Zydeco Po-Boys will be the smallest of the three restaurant spaces and will provide Cajon style cuisine in a walk-up order counter and “to-go” format. A small dining space has been provided for those wanting to dine in. A full service kitchen has been specifically designed for this space including preparation areas for various on-site made items including sausages, gumbo, and other Cajun cooking. Design features include exposed concrete floors, reclaimed wood accent walls, brick veneering accent walls, and exposed ceilings.
Look for this space to join the others first quarter 2015, providing one more variety of cuisine along Carson Avenue in downtown Las Vegas.
Check out this article from Eater about our newest project at 7th and Carson (just west of the Downtown Container Park) we are currently working through permits on:
We are also just starting the work on the referenced third restaurant, to also be a design-build project. More info to follow as it can be released.
Work is starting to progress on the new retail and restaurant spaces at 7th and Carson, known as the Sears Retail. Due to the age of the structures and typical of many of the projects we are involved with downtown (built originally in 1955 with an addition in the 1970’s), the building required asbestos abatement procedures before any further work could take place. The abatement work has been completed and investigative work for the new tenant restaurant spaces has begun.
Breslin Builders is providing design-build services for the project which include a new facade and two new restaurant spaces. The existing barber shop is remain in place and we will be building around them. Plans have been submitted to the City of Las Vegas for the facade and shell remodel, with restaurant plans nearing completion for permits. Look for the new facades and new restaurant spaces to be completed and opened Fall 2014.
In addition to the facade and shell remodels at the existing Sears Retail building at the northwest corner of 7th Street and Carson Avenue (west of the Downtown Container Park), Breslin Builders has recently been awarded contracts from Downtown Project to provide design-build services for two new restaurants within the remodels shell space.
Both restaurants will be new tenant improvements within the existing shell space including new kitchen areas, restrooms, support space, as well as indoor and outdoor dining space. One restaurant will focus on standard American cuisine while the other is to be a Vegan restaurant (including an anticipated certification from the Green Restaurant Association, which Breslin Builders is working with the owner and his representative to achieve).
These two new additions, as well a future vacant restaurant space, are being built within the to be remodels shell space already in place, and will join the “A Cut Above The Rest” barber shop already within the building. The new facade and shell remodel will bring much needed updates to the aging building, new utility services for the restaurant spaces, as well as new facades for each space giving each location their own individual appearance. The original building was completed in 1955 with an addition in the mid-1970’s. While many of the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems are outdated and antiquated, the shell and “bones” of the building are good and will be reused.
We anticipate construction to start mid-May once permits have been issues from the City of Las Vegas with an anticipated opening of the updated center (except for the barber shop which will remain open during construction) in the Fall 2014. Breslin Builders is excited to add yet another mark on downtown Las Vegas, including one across the street from the recently completed Downtown Container Park, also a design-build project completed by Breslin Builders.
